3,478 M

Mount Rantemario (3,478m) is the highest point on Sulawesi Island. It’s a part of the mountain range called Latimojong. It lies on the northern part of South Sulawesi. The Latimojong range has many peaks besides Rantemario, and it’s all above 3,000 m. Most of it had been climbed before. Though the vast area of the mountain range are not fully explored. And other peaks besides Rantemario was less climbed. Most of all, Latimojong Range was a sanctuary for the endangered species, Mountain Anoa. We sometimes still can see the trace of them when trekking on the mountain. But it’s very hard to see one. Sadly, the range hasn’t been established as National Park, not even a National Reserve.
